Its been a busy time here on the farm. Lots of perennial planting of herbs and veggies (asparagus)
Sprucing up the orchard, though we did loose 3 trees, and will replace those that didn’t make it.

The Elderberries are doing great! Now that they are weed free and not being choked out!
We found this wonderful young man Teddy Mattson from Thorndike ME who is certified in permaculture.
He is amazing with plantings and does Hugel Kultur. The below is our first finished Hugel with perennial herbs.

The Summer Season is in full swing, I hope you are protecting you skin from the effects of the sun.
A salt scrub is a great way to get rid of the dead skin and make your skin glow.

Consider what Dr. Mercola has to say in regard to bath and shower products:

“If I were to tell you that your shower and bath products could be putting you at risk for less-than-optimal skin and eye health, immune and endocrine function, would you pay a little more attention to your products’ ingredients?

Did you know that applying a substance to your skin isn’t much different from eating it? In fact, I believe it may be even worse.

And let’s not forget… a hot steaming shower…

* Opens your skin pores
* Drives a high absorption rate of chemicals directly into your system
* Vaporizes 70 to 90% of the chemicals present so you inhale them into your lungs
When you consider that products such as shower gels and soaps may be used daily, you can imagine the chemical residue that may build up over the years. (Source: http://bathcare.mercola.com/)

Essentially, it’s safe to say that if it’s not something you would eat, it is best not to put it on your skin.

We have added some new products:

– Anointing oil – Spiral of Life  Associated with the cycles of time, seasons, birth, growth, death and then rebirth.

Lullaby Diffuser blend  Cedarwood Himalaya, Cedarwood Virginiana, Sweet Orange

– Visit our Diffuser Blends page 

Coffee CO2-to Extract : if you really truly love the scent of coffee .. this is amazing material

And so much more to explore on our site. So on a really hot day when you just want to sit back in the a/c and have a chill out day, please visit our site and learn about our products.

Stay cool and remember to hydrate and don’t forget the old folks do not do well in the heat .. nor do our pets.

Oppose H.R. 2359: Safe Cosmetics Act of 2011

We ask that all small business owners takes the time to thoroughly read the entire bill, not just the exemptions in a vacuum, and understands all aspects of the legislation prior to supporting it. 

Please go to this page, read what it is all about and please, sign the petition. I did, will you ??

We all want safe cosmetics, but this will not help and is geared for the ‘big business’ not the small business folks.

Knowledge is power, don’t wait til it’s to late and this is a done deal.

For more information on this bill:

Ten reasons why you should not support SCA 2011:

Written by Robert Tisserand: The Environmental Working Group, who have given birth to this legislation, is an incompetent organization that does not understand the science of toxicology, does not understand natural products, and that takes a biased, negative view of safety, often seeing dangers that do not exist.

Veterans Day / Remembrance

Thursday – November 11th, 2010:

A special day to thank and honor all the men & women who served honorably in the armed forces in war or peacetime.

McCrae’s “In Flanders Fields” remains to this day one of the most memorable war poems ever written. It is a lasting legacy of the terrible battle in the Ypres salient in the spring of 1915. Here is the story of the making of that poem:
In Flanders Fields

‘Even if something is left undone,
everyone must take time to sit still
and watch the leaves turn.’
– Elizabeth Lawrence
